X-Ray (Radiography)

X-ray is a very important diagnostic tool and one of the oldest forms of diagnostic imaging. It is used to create images of the body's internal structures. X-ray exams are performed by medical radiation technologists. X-ray is used to detect abnormalities in bones, lungs and other internal structures.

Most x-rays do not require appointments; walk-ins are accepted between 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
